Global warming, we curse you. Saturday, we're in shorts and a tee, and last night our teeth are chattering on the walk home.

If you haven't gotten your hands on one yet, consider yesterday's chill and today's showers all the excuse you need to go shopping. Here are ten fun options to get you started.
